Took an hour to drive 1.5 mile to get in and parked, where it normally took 10 minutes...

Damn, what in the world would have made them change that?

tech69 after a week long heat wave of 100+ and two days of 110, I checked the community Facebook page and found out the local swim park was open on Friday night. It was probably the best experience my kids had there. It was so refreshing to just sit in the water after a hard week's work. I don't think I've ever felt so refreshed. My wife didn't want to go cause she said she wanted to relax but I can't think of anything more relaxing than sitting in that water. Easy for her to say in an AC'd office. Today I might practice a little Tig welding with some unimportant project

SVTFreak What is BTTF?

Man those all day thrash's when you still can't get it right suck.

Spent an hour or so today running a brake line. Then got the call that the wife was 10 min out with the baby and I had to keep him for a couple hours. I was nasty!

But I did finish the brake line pass through at the firewall (since the MC will be under dash). I like how it came out. I finally got my package from abs systems. Their electric power brake setup is TRICK. I'll set the body on the week to take measurement so I can mount the MC and figure how to get the rod to it. I may have to turn it around and do a 180* lever type setup.

Sorry for all the frustration. I assume you are in the 38?

Hopefully, you will have a great weekend ahead.

MARTINSR Got some welding done on the patch panel of the cab, but that was it. Got the rest of the drawer/shelf Varathaned with a semi gloss, it looks good. I am thinking I will leave the outer the way it is. I went to my local hardware store hoping to find some square nuts for the glass knobs and they had them, damn I love that place.

Yup. I guess that is what they are.

Are

BTW, I keep masking tape over the steering gear fluid fittings but the tape glares so bad in the pictures, I keep taking it off for the pictures. Jussoyaknow.

LOL I will be leaving for vacation soon and I will get a few more coats on it and leave it until I get back and try to sand it down some. It looks like it may happen after it's sanded or it may not, odd. I am thinking if it's got some good coats on it and I sand it a little before I leave maybe it will be able to dry harder like auto paint, allowing it open with the scratches to "flash" more and create a seal for the next coat.

Thanks again Pugsy.

I personally apply my urethane with a HVLP spray gun.

cool rocky mountain nights

The old house my wife's father built in 1941 gets hot upstairs, but the master bedroom is on the main floor. When we built the duplex I designed energy roof trusses. the roof plywood is 12 in above the walls so the insulation is thick all the way out R 50 ceilings, attic fans, the walls are 2 x 4 , spray foamed, then 1 inch of foam under the stucco, and one inch of foil wrapped foam under the sheetrock on the ext walls. The foundation has 6 in of foam. It kept cool last week when it was in the 80's and 90's our AC units are not hooked up. Night temps get down to the 60's.

duplex

A few years ago when my wife turned 72 I gave away her safety harness so she wouldn't have to get up on the roof anymore. I need to back up and get a better shot of the exterior. the building is 80 ft long. and to rock the front of the garage I stacked 4 ft of pallets put the 6 x 3 work basket on, strapped it all together. . and my wife was up there handing me the rocks and telling me where to set them.
